    If you look on the listing, $475 didn't meet the reserve price so it didn't really sell. It would be interesting to know what price they were really looking for. . .

    I can't believe they are trying to sell this at this price! Would make a great lamp? Whaaaaaat?
    I am surprised that this one doesn't stress the "rare silver version" of the decals....

    for the pink pearl FW- personally, I think it is great- mine is a little more fuschia. I do like the pearl. That paint is just about $100/qt.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Ummm...maybe with his $50 he will buy "Hooked on Phonics," or at least a vowel.

    Vowels cost more than $50 but maybe he could be an "R" ~ even that would be an improvement.

    OK, for those of us who are REALLY slow, can you let us in on it? What is unusual?

    When I try to go to these sites I get a stick picture of a cow and a "page not found" headline. What gives?
